As you begin to work more with the web galleries, you'll notice that there are some web galleries, like this one here. Which allow you to take advantage of, and display valuable image info. In this case, what we can do is we can display the image Title, or Caption. And this can be really helpful with pictures. Let's say, if we click on one of these photographs, we can see this image, and it's a little bit more big. Yeah, you'll notice that there isn't anything displayed above in regards to, say, a Title, or maybe a Caption. Either above or below, well, why is that? We have these boxes checked on.

Adding captions and titles

As you begin to work more with the web galleries, you'll notice that there are some web galleries, like this one here. Which allow you to take advantage of, and display valuable image info. In this case, what we can do is we can display the image Title, or Caption. And this can be really helpful with pictures. Let's say, if we click on one of these photographs, we can see this image, and it's a little bit more big. Yeah, you'll notice that there isn't anything displayed above in regards to, say, a Title, or maybe a Caption. Either above or below, well, why is that? We have these boxes checked on.

Well, the reason why nothing is being displayed is because we haven't added anything in our Metadata panel to this image, or these images. In order to do that, we'll go the Library module. So here, let's click on the Library module button, and in the panels on the right, we're going to expand our Metadata panel. And we can just leave this on the Default setting here, because this gives us access to the Title and Caption fields. Let's go ahead and add a Title here. And I'll go ahead and type out Barton Family, Santa Barbara. Next, for the caption, I'm going to type out a Caption. The Barton family enjoys the sunset at Butterfly Beach in Santa Barbara, California.

Next I'm going to go back to the Web module. Here in the Web module, we'll all of a sudden notice that this information is now displayed. We have the title up top, Barton family, Santa Barbara, and we have the caption down below. The Barton family enjoys the sunset at Butterfly Beach in Santa Barbara, California. We can also change the way this information is displayed. If the title, we'll say, is a little bit distracting, we can go ahead and remove that by simply clicking on this button, in order to deselect that option. Or, we can change the information which is displayed.

Let's say for example that this web gallery, well it's a little bit more about a gallery which is instructive, it's for other photographers. Well, from this title menu we could change that to display, say our equipment. So that people could know how this image was captured with the 5D Mark II, the 70 to 200 F28 lens. So we could display that there. And again, there are various fields that we can choose here. And we could then go back to title also, to just select that title field there. So what this allows us to do is to display Metadata along with our images.

Which, in certain scenarios, can be incredibly helpful.
